Wolf Creek ready for season

Raven’s Nest at Wolf Creek


WOLF CREEK — For the 2012-13 ski season, Colorado Ski Country USA (CSCUSA) resorts are dedicated to solidifying Colorado as the top ski vacation destination, including exceeding guest expectations for services, amenities and resort facilities.

Colorado is synonymous with skiing because guests know they will find consistent powder snow framed by top-notch services. As part of their commitment, resorts are enhancing their profiles this season, adding new infrastructural components that will make visitors’ time on the slopes more efficient and rewarding.

Improved snow making and maintenance at a number of resorts is calculated to enhance skiing and riding, while guest-facing developments such as new restaurants, increased terrain and additional built-in activities will supplement the overall guest experience.

These capabilities, along with numerous other additions and renovations throughout Colorado Ski Country, are intended to usher in a new era of guest service and help maintain Colorado’s position as the nation’s leading state for winter activities. Below are the 2012-13 capital improvements at the San Luis Valley’s own ski area, Wolf Creek:

Wolf Creek’s new Race Hutch will debut this season, located at the bottom of Charisma where the race-course finishes. Race equipment, fencing, gates, sound system and banners will be located in this small building. Also, new water-free composting restrooms will be installed at the base of the Alberta Lift replacing the current temporary port-a-potties.

With a variety of new infrastructural capital developments, Wolf Creek will open The Continental, a small building that will house an espresso bar located on the top of the Treasure Chairlift. This guest service snack station will offer a variety of coffees and teas, both caffeinated and decaffeinated, as well as other drink items and fresh baked pastries. A water free composting restroom will be located on the lower level.

The ski area’s on-mountain pizzeria had a soft opening toward the end of last season, and has inspired the next step in the resort’s development. Raven’s Roost, a full service bar, will open on the top level of the Raven’s Nest, a beautiful glass restaurant located at the top of the Raven Lift. The Raven’s Nest will be fully stocked and ready to serve at the start of the upcoming ski season.

Wolf Creek not only purchased a new Piston Bully 400 Snowcat to improve terrain options, but has installed two more Gazex exploders, one in the Horseshoe Bowl and one on the Knife Ridge. The Gazex and Aviblasters are an integral part of Wolf Creek’s Avalanche Hazard Reduction Program.

Wolf Creek has also invested heavily in its rental fleet.
